I complained a lot today. I did a lot of things without a good attitude today. I didn’t focus on living my life with abundance. I let other people bother me. And I recognize that it was my choice to remain mentally in that place all day. I’m voicing my disappointment with how I acted today in words because I want the words to haunt me tomorrow. I want to remember the bad day so I can try to redirect tomorrow.
Tonight I focused on re-aligning my priorities. I did a few things I didn’t want to do, but really needed to complete. Welcome satisfaction! I had a conversation with a friend and tried to moderate my approach and response when I realized I was pushing his buttons. Welcome giving attitude and friendship! I read and watched a few things around the internet that gave me a mini spark. Welcome creativity!
I think I have a voice in my head that asks me for perfection everyday. I’m so, so very far from perfect, but yet it asks me daily. I think I’d like to retrain it this year to ask for abundance. I want that positive One Little Word that I chose to resonate on days like this. Maybe after a few weeks or months of focusing on abundance, I’ll have the power to shift a day like this mid course, to really adjust my attitude and take the day in a more positive and abundant direction mid stream. That’s what I want from #olw this year.
And now, the first in a series of photographs of my paper whites. They were a lovely gift from a wonderful friend. When they came here on Monday, they were very small bulbs, with almost no green peeking out. In just 4 days they’ve really started to grow. Apparently the bulbs will flower and smell very good. I’m looking forward to that little ray of sunshine in these very grey Pittsburgh days.
